Teeth whitening is likely the most popular cosmetic dentistry solution, and we offer both in-office and take-home whitening treatments that brighten smiles up to ten shades over the course of treatment. We use the Zoom! whitening system for both in-office and at-home teeth whitening. In-office whitening combines high grade whitening gel with a specialized light that accelerates the process. In most cases, patients see results up to ten shades brighter in about an hour. Patients with sensitive teeth, those who want to whiten more gradually, and those who wish to touch up in-office whitening may prefer to use take-home whitening kits. These kits offer the same dramatic results after about two weeks of daily application.
Many patients come to us with years of minor chips, cracks, stains, and wear, and they just don’t know where to begin their cosmetic dentistry transformation. Porcelain veneers are a fast, effective, painless treatment that completely transforms smiles. Veneers are thin sheaths of dental grade porcelain that fit over the fronts of teeth to conceal flaws instantly transforming damaged teeth into picture perfect smiles. The porcelain veneer process takes two visits to complete. During an initial appointment, we remove a small amount of tooth enamel, capture bite impressions, and place a temporary veneer. Once we receive the custom restoration, patients return to exchange the temporary for the custom porcelain veneer.
Dental crowns and other restorations are available in a variety of materials including gold and porcelain bonded to metal. Each material has its advantages and disadvantages. However, the most cosmetic option is restoration with E-Max all-ceramic crowns, bridges, inlays, and onlays. Crafted from a single block of the highest quality dental grade ceramic, our E-Max restorations blend flawlessly into patients’ natural smile lines, and even after years of wear and tear, these crowns and other restorations retain their flawless, natural appearance.
Botox & Juvederm Dermal Fillers
For those patients interested in extending their new found youthful appearance beyond their smile, we offer Botox and Juvederm treatments to restore the smooth, wrinkle-free volume to skin around the eyes and mouth. Botox injections prevent unnecessary muscle motions preventing wrinkles from forming and decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Juvederm is a dermal filler that replaces lost facial volume by implanting and shaping a biocompatible material below the skin to accurately recreate a youthful facial appearance.
Invisalign® Clear Braces
Traditional braces offer extensive orthodontic options to straighten even the most crooked or unevenly spaced teeth, but they don’t look great, cause patients to dramatically change their diets and hygiene routines, and treatment can take years to complete. Invisalign® uses a series of clear alignment trays to gently shift teeth into alignment. These aligners are easily removed during meals and hygiene, so patients don’t need to make changes to their daily routines. Additionally, these aligners are virtually invisible to the naked eye, making them the most cosmetic orthodontic solution.
We also offer ClearCorrect Braces as an alternative to clunky metal braces. Instead of a bracket and wire system, ClearCorrect's series of alignment trays gently guide teeth into place for a straighter, beautiful smile. They do not disrupt your daily life and are easily removeable for eating and routine dental hygiene. Contact us today to learn how we use ClearCorrect to give you the smile of your dreams!
Six Month Smiles® Braces
Traditional braces use metallic brackets and wires to shift teeth into their ideal alignment over the course of eighteen to twenty-four months on average. Six Month Smiles® offer patients a more cosmetic option. Rather than silver-colored metal brackets and wires, Six Month Smiles® uses clear and tooth colored materials to shift just those teeth that are visible within patients’ smiles. By focusing on these front teeth, sometimes called the social six, we’re able to perfect the appearance of smiles in just three to six months on average.
